      Neighborhoods

      Explore our neighborhood.

      A famous singer from a famous Athens, Georgia band once said that the beauty of this town is that it's so off the map, there's no way it could ever be anything like the East Village or L.A. scene. He was right—there’s no place like it. Athens is a classic college town that lives and breathes Bulldog football but gets its real street cred from a culturally significant folk art scene and a musical history that’s seen some of the biggest names in rock get their start playing fraternity houses up and down Milledge Avenue.

      Georgia Museum of Art

      The GMOA's modern and elegant facility houses a permanent collection of more than 9,000 works of art as well as a variety of traveling exhibitions.

      • we enjoyed our weekend in Athens, walking to downtown and campus. Great restaurants and shopping so close by. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Definately coming back

      • This was our first stay at a Hotel Indigo - we were very impressed. Numerous eco-friendly details throughout the hotel, and a fresh zen-like decor. We appreciated the local food and coffee offerings. The breakfast was quick and tasty. An afternoon cocktail specialty, I believe it was called a "Bees Knees," was a welcome refresher and super yummy. The staff was welcoming and helpful. Our only minor complaint was the hardwood floors reverberating noise, but I wouldn't trade them for the typical drab carpet. I suspect noise would be an issue in any hotel near a bustling university ... overall we plan on making this our "go-to" hotel for future UGA visits.

      • This hotel fulfilled all of our expectations! The location was close enough to downtown to enjoy the nightlife but far enough sleep sound! The room service and breakfast tasted amazing! Would recommend this hotel to anyone who enjoys class, friendly staff and the feeling of comfort.
